"President's Message"
 An exciting new year has startedat 595 Long Pond Rd. Already wehave had record crowds on Sundaysto view our Paddy Hill exhibit. Thespecial Sunday programs have beenwell received and we have had twovery entertaining Tuesday eveningprograms.Meanwhile in the upstairs office, we have started en-tering data into our new software,
PastPerfect 
. This new program will enhance the organization of our collectionto include photographs of our inventory along with do-nor information. Other features of the software are theability to share information with other museums and tomake images and archives more available to the pub-lic. For the next several months, with the help of our vol-unteer and trustee
Sue Hodge
, we will be transitioninginformation from a format that was created years ago toa more modern database created exclusively for muse-ums. To help us with this project,
Scott Bowlin
of "
Bowlin's Remodeling
" , has volunteered to make aphoto station so we can better photograph our artifacts.Eventually,
PastPerfect 
will also enable us to more accu-rately record membership data. Along with the new software, our goal is to becomea more interactive museum. With up-to-date technology we would be better able to engage our visitors(especially our younger visitors) in their museum experi-ence. Along with these new goals, we are looking for-ward to a roof replacement on the house, reconstructionof the back stairway exit, and finishing the basement tobe used for school and scout activities as well as a workarea for assembling exhibits and restoring artifacts.We have a full agenda, but with your continued sup-port we feel confident we will be able to reach most of our goals.We now have over 260 people on our monthly e-mail blast. If you would like to be included, send an e-mail togreecehistory595@gmail.com.If you are active on
